It's that time again. The NCTE has announced the Orbis Pictus Awards for outstanding nonfiction! I am thrilled to see some writing friends on the list as well as some books edited by some very talented nonfiction editors! The books on the list are published by a variety of publishers, including Houghton Mifflin, Scholastic, Calkins Creek, Holt, and Clarion. The topics cover a wide spectrum - everything from outer space to civil rights to frogs to magicians and everything in between!
Congratulations to all the authors, illustrators and editors who worked to bring these fascinating subjects to children!
